Who are VeChain?

Established in 2015, VeChain is a prominent business blockchain platform that attempts to apply blockchain technology to the real world. Companies receive fitting blockchain solutions for their business requirements and a dependable and decentralised business ecosystem platform that creates business value. 

VeChain manages the supply chain and product lifecycle, aiming to streamline processes and information flow by removing intermediaries through using Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT).

There are two tokens associated with VeChain, VET which carries the value from smart contracts on its blockchain, and VTHO (VeChainThorEnergy) is the fuel that powers transactions.

VeChainThor’s agreement protocol is ‘Proof of Authority’, and distribution of votes is dependant on VET holdings and disclosures. VET holders with KYC (know Your Customer – a process of identity verification and identification) with one million tokens are accountable for 30% of all votes, whilst those without KYC only receive 20% of votes.

Another type of VeChain masternode is economic masternodes, these do not create blocks or ledger records, but check power by allocating votes to each economic masternode based on their VET holdings. Ten thousand VET held by an economic masternode receives one vote.

The company has entered into collaborations with many leading companies from diverse industrial sectors, and the latest is Grant Thornton Cyprus.
